20 June 2017

Seminars about renting will be held in selected locations across New Zealand in 2017.

The aim of the seminars is to inform and educate landlords, renters and community groups about the recent changes to the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA), and to provide tips and information about how to make sure properties are compliant with the law.

Speaking at the seminars will be representatives from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) Tenancy Services, the Energy Efficiency Conservation Authority (EECA), the Ministry of Justice (Tenancy Tribunal) and the New Zealand Property Investors’ Federation.

Topics include:

  • What you need to know about the 2016 changes to the RTA, including smoke alarms and insulation requirements
  • An update on the upcoming key provisions of the RTA Amendment Bill (i.e. methamphetamine contamination, tenant liability for damage and unlawful residential premises)
  • The Tenancy Compliance and Investigation team
  • Tenancy Services’ dispute resolution and bond processes and services
  • The benefits of joining a Property Investor Association

Tea and coffee will be provided on arrival. Each seminar is approximately 2 hours, including time for questions. There is no charge for the seminars, but places are limited so you must register.
